Gloria Mae Yoder

Gloria Mae Yoder, 89, of Douglassville, passed away Thursday, October 22,
2020, at Reading Hospital.

Gloria was born on August 26, 1931 to George and Grace Klein. She
graduated from Amity High School where she was a member of the basketball
team, a sport which she maintained a lifelong appreciation of. On August 24,
1952 she married Stanley Sunday Yoder, known affectionately to her as Skip.
Together they raised a son and two daughters. Her domestic capabilities were
masterful and she took immense pride in her role as homemaker. Her devotion
to the health and happiness of her family was recognized by all. An
accomplished seamstress, she once worked professionally crafting designer
garments for the fashion industry and, more importantly, produced custom
tailored pajamas for all of her grandchildren. She possessed a natural
curiosity about the world and was always a source of rich conversation and
insightful perspectives, no matter the subject. She especially cherished her
summers with Skip on the Delaware shore where she expertly skippered
aboard The King Fisher in the waters of the Rehoboth Bay and Atlantic

Gloria was predeceased by her husband, Stanley S. Yoder on October
25, 2018. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Michael and
Kathleen (James) Yoder; daughter and son-in-law, Cindy and Tony Salata;
daughter and companion Cathy Witter and Steve Bashore; brother Donald
Klein of Wernersville, and seven grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

Services and burial will be private for the safety of all due to COVID 19.
